The development of large, single piece composite structures within Aerospace, Wind Power, Marine Design, and Materials Research poses a challenge for contemporary nondestructive testing methods when dealing with such sheer size. To tackle the issue head on, Shearography (or speckle pattern shearing intereferometry) is used. Its offers significant advantages with:
Large Area Testing (up to 1 m² per minute)
Insensitivity to Environmental Disturbances
Good Performance on Honeycomb Materials.
